Set against a statuesque cliff backdrop, St Andrews Aquarium feature a procession of sea life, creepy-crawlies and furry mammals. The centre hosts birthday parties and school trips for marine-mad munchkins, and has cemented its family-friendly credentials with a nomination for Best Visitor Attraction at the Scottish Thistle Awards 2014. An on-site cafe lets guests rest weary legs and quench hunger pangs with freshly-baked cakes, while the gift shop stocks an array of educational toys and mementos. Visitors after more than a stroll round the exhibits can get hands-on in seal, penguin and meerkat feeding sessions. The aquarium opens its door seven days a week.
